1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
I graduated with a degree in Religion in 2011. I later came back to GVSU to study Social Work, where I then went on to get my masters at WMU. Today, I work at school helping kids process through trauma and other mental health disorders. I also encourage all kids to apply to GVSU for college!
